Now that the dust has semi-settled

Now that the dust has semi-settled
I hadn’t done a blog in a minute or so, it’s been a rough couple of years Covid etc.
We’ve dealt with some really trying times.and God dang! I’m done with it and hoping for better times.
We had a megalomaniac of a President, we’ve had some far left rioters/protesters.
With that being said I’ve always been a middle of the road kinda gal . Not wanting to be too far right or too far left.
To my chagrin I’ve even been a Republican for most of my adult life. That changed when it got stupid.
The pivotal point for me was when our president tried to make the BLM issue something the blacks or people of color (Hispanics etc) were just pulling out of their asses.
It’s really not the case. My heart has been hurt by many a “friend” husband.,boyfriend etc.
While people go along to get, along they always and I mean ALWAYS remember the crappy comments people make.
I mean after all my sweet husband said “people were intimidated by me because im dark”. That was quite the shit show of an argument. To be honest it still pisses me off.
I remember sitting in dispatch while a very dear “friend” joked about a black woman being afraid of a cat at her window. Needless to say I was insulted about the way she talked of that woman. I couldn’t even talk to her the next day. She asked me what was wrong and I of course acted like nothing was wrong.
Another time I had a “friend” talk about how Hispanics are afraid of dogs and how she was shocked my sub contractor had a GSD.
Like really? We have pets and take damn good care of them.
I myself come from a black Hispanic grandmother and very white grandfather (both Hispanic) grandparents. I also have German heritage on my mother’s side. I feel both sides of the racism being thrown around. It’s disgusting to everyone with even a smidgeon of color/white in us.
I’m not the racism police by any stretch of the imagination, but I do ask and almost plead to use care in your speech because you’re making an impression on someone.
Let’s make it a good one!

A funny gals take on the ups and downs of dealing with MS. The stuff people don't like to talk about. The hilarious situations I've found myself in. I hope this brings laughter to a disease that isn't very humorous
